A christmas story

I love everything ZARA do –  in terms of editorials, choice of photographers, look books and collabs. Always so inspirational. The day they become sustainable – woho!

The December editorial is always extra since I´m such a lover of Christmas. Isn’t it just so beautiful?

A christmas story

Love this and it’s easy to copy which it’s muy important

  • buy a fake garland or make one if you’re one of those amazing guys (I don’t have time and I don’t know how to make one but I will absolutely try this year cuz I love to do one)
  • Lots of candles (having small kids like us, just buy fake led lights. Sooo cozy to put out on Christmas morning….
  • a little table with a long table cloth, a few more candles and voila
A christmas story

The older I get the more I realize how much flowers and greenery adds to decoration both inside and outside.

A christmas story

It almost looks like the shade we have in our movie room and hallway! Very christmas-y !

 

A christmas story

again- nature makes the most beautiful installations <3

List no #1 – my skincare routine

3 months ago

list no #1 – MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

Yes, jag har gjort en lista. Jag älskar listor och jag har skrivit ner allt. På förfrågan så finns hela min skin & body routine  här! 

Vilken prövotid man har gått igenom i sitt liv när det kommer till sånt här? Vågar inte ens tänka på det, men just därför så känns det som att min absoluta body lotion inte kommer att bytas ut pga inte hittat någon som doftar eller känns bättre någonsin! Samma gäller mina hårprodukter herregud och ansiktsprodukter. Allt på listan är det bästa som jag prövat!

Finns dock två produkter som inte är på min clickable list och det är dessa:

  1. Jag avgudar Betiyons cleansing oil & Séptieme hair mist. Jag älskar allt ekologiskt och naturligt som ni vet och därför är det en sån glädje att hitta produkter som är naturliga som också fungerar och doftar magiskt.

Angående deo. Hur gör ni? Jag har inte hittat ngn bättre än den jag använder och då har jag kört igenom det naturliga segmentet och verkligen kämpat. Jag återkommer alltid till den jag har nu för det finns ingen bättre vad jag vet. Hur känner ni och hur gör ni?

Självklart pausar jag ibland med kemiska produkter och gjorde det när jag bland annat väntade mina tre döttrar och även den första tiden med dem hemma men ibland vill man också ha det bästa resultatet. Därför är jag också så extremt lycklig över det smink jag använder, det är enbart ett enda märke och det är helt sjukt bra OCH naturligt. Den listan kommer näst.

Yeeeees, I’ve made a “shop my skin routine favs” list!

(2 products that are not on my clickable list but they are lovable just as much:

1.I adore Betiyon’s cleansing oil & 2. Séptieme hair mist. I love all things organic and natural as you know and that’s why it’s such a joy to find products that are natural that also work and smell magical.
Regarding the deo. How do you do it? I have not found any better than the one Ive done my work through the natural segment and really struggled. I always go back to the one I have now because there is none better as far as I know. How do you feel about natural versus chemical deo´s?

Of course, I sometimes take a break with chemical products and did so when, among other times when I was expecting my three daughters- and also the first months with them at home. BUT sometimes you also want the best results! That’s why I’m also so extremely happy about the makeup I use… but that will be on another list. xoxo

All about Autumn

Autumn is here for real.

My fall wardrobe is the same year after year, and it’s my favorite season to dress.

 

All about Autumn

true lover of oversized men’s clothes, huge scarves and boots and the older the better according to me

Here I’m wearing jeans but now with merino wool underneath, oversized suit jackets in wool. old leather belts,  knee-high boots, shirts and high-neck sweaters.

 

It gets darker, it gets quieter, it’s time for reflection no matter if we want it or not, it comes with the seasonal change.

I always get more creative this time of year but in a different kind of way. The year is soon behind us, what have I learned? What’s important to me now?  What has been the biggest change?

All about Autumn

How I dream my garden will look like one day. I’ve become such a gardener, loving it so much and I had no idea I would before we moved out of town.

It’s such an amazing thing to love, just browsing about plants and trees and being outside hoping things will grow.

All about Autumn

Fall is when nature is the most beautiful – it shows it’s most beautiful side before it goes to sleep.

Just because we know that the fall folliage is temporary – does that makes us more prone to see the beauty of it?

I firmly believe we can only be truly present when we know that our intense experience is now and only now. Fall brings out that feeling.

All about Autumn

I will make this receipe this weekend! It’s from the beautiful and so inspiring book: “Fridays from the Garden” by  Flamingo Estate.

All about Autumn

love this book so so much.

All about Autumn

This color. Obsessive. A shade to hide behind, to dive into, to dream in, to indulge in, to dress in, to decorate with, to be seduced by. Luckily we still have a guest bathroom to fix in our home, so I´m gonna paint it in Farrow & Ball Brinjal 222.  

I also found this bedding from Hay that I love! Stripes is always a good idea and this goes amazing for the season.

All about Autumn

This is one of the rooms in our house, it’s not even half done yet when it comes to fixing curtains and shelves and putting up art on the walls etc, but it doesn’t matter. I love our deep petrol blue colored couch, and it’s the perfect place to hide. A velvet couch from and veryone in the family love our movie dungeon. I’m a pisces and we love our dark wood and shades for sho.

 

All about Autumn

our weekly afternoons in the stable is my favorite ones,  Anaïs is riding and I’m watching her and helping out with the horses and I dream of living on the countryside. I love being close to people and I get energized by being social, but I also love being close to nature more and more…  Anyone else feel this too?

All about Autumn

When we finally got a hold of an old piano, I felt that our home was finally on its way to be completed. We got it for free and it doesn’t sound perfect but that’s how we love it.

All about Autumn

The space under the stairs is still reserved for the most important people in the family and I’m so glad we made it a hideout.

I simply put out sheep skins and tiny string lights. A book I love so much and have used so much as well is “Hidden Places – Handbok för vuxna till barnens magiska värld”

All about Autumn

All I want right now is a dog, a horse, a leather couch, heavy velvet curtains in every room, tartan wool blankets in every corner and heavily printed cushions.  Should we move out to the country side? Probably. Pic :  1990´s Ralph Lauren ad who does maximalistic country style the best.

To all of you, a calm and lovely weekend<3 <3

Phoebe philo – my favorites from the new collection

PHOEBE PHILO – MY FAVORITES FROM THE NEW COLLECTION

Phoebe Philo has finally launched her own label, and the world has waited…

I don’t care about trends or new launches I shop more like a man and I always have. I don’t own a Celine bag from when Phoebe Philo was the creative leader, but I read a very long interview with Philo in T Magazine when we lived in NYC. I ripped those pages out as well and I still have them in an old leather folder and I’ve read it many times. I loved her view on style, design and life. Also yes,  it’s really true that I have a map, and I still rip from whatever magazines or newspaper when I feel like I need to save to my life inspo archive. I’ve kept all my favorite editorials / interviews throughout the years and it’s a select few but I still love them and they still inspire me whenever I read or look through them.

(btw these fkn amazing zip trousers are top of my favorites from the new collection)

PHOEBE PHILO – MY FAVORITES FROM THE NEW COLLECTION

As well a short note on the model Daria Werbovy, she was my first style icon when I was young and started to get interested in fashion and design. She just had all that swag according to me, and she still does, even more now

thoughts about painting

what´s going on in my life whatever it is, always needs to go into my paintings. Otherwise it’s all meaningless. Thoughts, ideas, memories, whatever is happening all has to be on there.
